Top Five Caustic Soda Suppliers Dominating the Chemical Industry

Nov 7, 2017

Caustic soda, also known as lye, has a wide variety of applications including candle making, homemade biodiesel, food preparation, soap making, and various chemistry experiments. Companies manufacturing and supplying caustic soda, also provide it to the petroleum industry where they use it as an additive in drilling mud to increase mud viscosity and neutralize any acid gases as the drilling progresses. The recent report from SpendEdge covers all vendors involved in the manufacturing, supplying, and exporting of caustic soda and estimates the market to be worth $42.08 billion by the year 2021. Currently, to provide better quality caustic soda and reduce the environmental impact, caustic soda suppliers are focusing on new manufacturing techniques such as membrane cell technology.Request Free Sample
